Lining à la Chanel with Jean Frost
Coco Chanel developed a special way to line her beautiful jackets. You will learn these lining techniques step by step. You will leave the class with the skills needed to line jackets in this manner. A lined jacket is a masterpiece and a joy to wear. Learn how to assemble, sew in a lining, and finish a jacket in the same manner in which Chanel couture garments are made. Get hands-on experience in lining and finishing your jacket like a pro!
Note: For your planning purposes class begins on Friday afternoon and continues on Saturday morning

Supplies
Yarn the jacket is knit with to assemble the jacket, 2 yards of silky lining (more if you are a larger size), sewing thread to match and contrast, sewing needles and pins, scissors to cut fabric. The jacket pieces should be blocked and unassembled.

Sharp scissors, notebook, pen or pencil with an eraser, stitch markers, blunt tapestry needles (large and small), flexible tape measure, small calculator, and needles & crochet hooks of various sizes.

Homework
Choose a Chanel style jacket pattern for your project. Knit the pieces of the jacket. You must bring at least a front, the back and ESPECIALLY a sleeve
